A number of cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens had to be moved to safety today when the RSPCA centre at Leybourne flooded.
Staff were alerted in the early hours and began evacuating the centre. Many of the animals were moved to the education room when much of the centre became surrounded by flood water. The worst affected part of the centre is the cattery.
